The Maine Children’s Home for Little Wanderers, based in Waterville, will host a Wine & Cheese fundraiser from 5 to 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 19, at One Longfellow Square, 181 State St., Portland.

November is National Adoption Awareness Month, a month designated to raise awareness about the urgent need for adoptive families for children and youth in foster care. Adoption Awareness Month is a time to celebrate our unique family stories, as well as a time to educate the public and encourage others to consider adoption.

Guests can enjoy wine and heavy hors d’oeuvres from Black Tie Catering, presentations from adoptive families and a silent auction.

Community members are invited to attend this event.
